Description

In this 35-hour “retreat- style” training, we will explore the four Foundation of Mindfulness as explored in the Buddha’s Satipatana Sutta, and use this as a framework to explore the practice of long-held postures. While teaching theory, anatomy, skeletal variation and posture clinics will be a large component of the course, this program requires participants to engage in personal inquiry and a willingness to establish a consistent home practice. When we teach from a place that is grounded in the insights of our own self-study, that which we teach has more resonance and transmission for our students.

This first module of the 70-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training program will provide you with the foundations to teach a yin yoga class with confidence and a thorough understanding of the physical body and mindfulness meditation. This course differs from other yin yoga teacher training programs in the depth of study we will do around meditation, Buddhist and Taoist theories as taught by Stephanie’s teacher, Sarah Powers. This course is NOT for those who wish to just learn about teaching Yin Yoga postures, rather, for those who have a keen interest in meditation and self-development that can be practiced within the Yin Yoga container. This training is just as much about developing your own practice, as it is about teaching. You do not have to be a yoga teacher to take this program.
